    America will win the race to the bottom.

    "We're Number One!"

    Both parties are beholden to their corporate sponsors. The Democratic Party deigns to throw us a few bones from the table on which to gnaw and squabble over, but it's just kabuki.

    •  You talk like there is a choice (0+ / 0-)

      There isn't.

      Poorer people in other countries are simply taking what they want. They care about you like you care about big shot bankers.

        •  I am certainly... (0+ / 0-)

          ...excited about the prospect of billions of people who used to live in shacks on rice paddies getting the opportunity for a decent life, as I am excited at the relentless rise in the mean and median global standard of living that has been occurring recently.

          That being said, I of course have major concerns about global environmental sustainability and have grave doubts that 7 billion people can exist on this planet for any significant length of time.
